Hello all, I hope it's ok to start a new thread for general discussion about fasting, whether you're interested in fasting, currently fasting or an experienced faster willing to give advice and support. I have been experimenting with various fasting lengths, between 16 hours and 4 and a half days so far. Lately I've been struggling, I think mostly because of reaching the weight loss plateau point and having a bit of regain. I'm also struggling to stay away from carbs and failing horribly sometimes. Still, I think fasting is really helping me, and I feel great when I'm doing it, so onward I go. This week I've completed a 40 hour fast (was going to be 36 but felt happy to continue to 40) and I'm very happy with that, as I have been finding it difficult to go beyond 24 hours recently. It has reset my appetite a bit, which 24 hours wasn't doing any more, and I'm delighted with that. I still have a lot of abdominal fat to lose, and of course I understand my lapses with carbs won't help, so I am trying to sort that out.
